  • As you have identified - the best solution is usually to follow this Q&A to install flash. It does work for the vast majority of users.


    Flash-Aid was discontinued by it's author and is unknown if it will be back, the following are kept only for historical reasons.


    As an alternative, one of the best tools I have found that allows you to configure Flash correctly during installation is the Flash-Aid addon - use the author's site or search on the Firefox addon-manager for Flash-Aid

    This will remove any remnants of of Flash installation and install flash directly from the Adobe Website. During the wizard installation you have a few configuration options that you can try to resolve flash-player issues.
